Best deals for post-Black Friday shopping
This year, the concept of “Black Friday” deals hasn’t necessarily been tied to one day. So although Black Friday was technically yesterday, retailers are offering similar markdowns — making it better for you if you thought you missed out.
With few in-store shoppers, sellers have been motivated to keep prices generally lower for longer this year as the competition moves online. We’ve been watching for the best bargains all year and have identified some that will help holiday shoppers as well as people looking to treat themselves. Prices and availability are subject to change.
